Last June I wrote a blog about Jack White and the Black Keys and in particular, I noted that Jack performed an Elvis Presley cover called "The Power of My Love" at his record-store day vinyl release party.
Here is a link to that post in case you missed it:
The vinyl that he released from his store is running about oh $200 on Ebay these days. It's an awesome performance and I remarked that the studio release of "Lazaretto" did not include the B-side Presley cover on it, like the special release live performance vinyl did.
There was a bootleg copy running around and we could only hope that it would be released to the masses someday.
I decided to check iTunes this week and there it was. So in the spirit of the holiday season and to pay tribute to Jack's homage to the number three, I'm going to give 3 free copies of this song to the first 3 people who ask for it. I bought the downloads and was going to try to paste them here for you to take. It didn't work however so I'm waiting to hear back from iTunes as to how to do that. Please feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or put your email in a comment and I will forward the free download email to you.
If they go quickly, I'll be sure to put up a post so you will know. I'm also tweeting this so if you are interested, please do reply soon.
Wishing you all a peaceful, happy and most wonderful time of the year!
It's a new year, and a new holiday season, so you can be sure there is new photography gear to go along with it. Here are a few of my favorite picks from the ever wonderful people at the Photojojo website.
Rescuing photos everywhere, the pocket flash, only $30. Works with iPhones, iPads, iPods, and Android phones.
The iPad telephoto lens. At $25, it's considerably less than some glass from the big guys.
The iPhone Boom Mic. 40 dollars. Now I just need an iPhone!
Bokeh kit for $25. It's already in my shopping cart.
The Phone-o-chrome: a $15 color filter for your phone. Love this one too.
A Wifi card for your camera. You'll want the $95 Pro version to send RAW files to your computer.
Photojojo is offering free shipping until Dec. 18 on orders over $50. No coupon this year, but if one pops up I will post it here.
Thanks for stopping by!

With the hope of not being redundant, I am going to add a few more items to my blog of Dec. 11 entitled “Gifts for the Photographer in Your Life” for 2 reasons. First is the WordPress Reader did not pick it up (I was in the penalty box for overtagging my previous post) and second is because the cheap shipping option is still available until tomorrow 12/16.
If you missed the previous post, here is a link:
Photojojo is an online website dealing in funky camera gadgets and accessories for your iPhone or SLR. My last post showed some of the iPhone add-ons, so this time I’ll show a couple SLR items. Also, scroll down to the end for a $5 off coupon (of $25 minimum order) and they also send me a $5 coupon for referring you on.
How about a Holga lens for $30? Works on most SLRs and DSLRs.
I like this idea for traveling. You insert this camera bag into another bag, like a beach bag, so it’s not so obvious you are carrying photo gear, as in if you are lugging your Lowepro bag around. $59
This item is intriguing. A camera card with Wi-Fi capabilities! $50-85 depending on capacity.
Here is the coupon code. Just click on it for an express trip to Photojojo. Happy holidays!

Photojojo is one of the coolest websites on the internet showcasing creative photography ideas through the use of toys and gadgets for cameras.
If you are looking for something great for the photographer in your life (and I’m sure they are hard to impress when it comes to photo gear) or if you are the photographer, buy something for yourself or drop a hint to the right person. Their prices are so reasonable you can probably pick up a couple of pieces for your bag.
Just check out some of these cool items:

How about a cable release for your iPhone? Only $23.
Here’s a fun one. The camalapse. It takes 360 degree panning time-lapse images with your phone. $45 (I’m not sure what happens if you get a call or text during the exposure. Better not answer it.)
What do Nikon shooters do with their old Canon lenses? They make coffee mugs out of them. (Just kidding. They make Nikon mugs too.) $24 or $30.
This is super cool. An underwater scuba skin for your phone. $60. I know people who should have this on their phone at all times, for those poolside or lakeside cocktail parties where phones suddenly end up taking the plunge.
There is much, much more on their website. Not everything is for the iPhone, there are lots of add-ons for SLRs.
Orders placed by 12/16 still qualify for first class shipping and the shipping prices are very reasonable.
Oh and if you want…use this link to get $5 off your order with a $25 purchase and I also get a $5 coupon. Pretty neat!
